RA-4 paper and flights
Hi, next month I'll travel to Berlin from Italy, and I'd like to buy some color paper there. Do you think the airport x-ray scanner will harm the paper? I've already tried with film and it is safe, but I really don't know if it will be the same for the paper...
As a guess, it'll be fine. Paper is much less sensitive than film (ISO 1 ish) and so would fog less than film would. Still, would suggest avoiding putting it in checked baggage.
I just have to say that RA-4 paper is quite sensitive to blue, much more than ISO 1 -- probably closer to ISO 100. It's still probably ok, just take it with you as hand baggage.
I think it'll be fine too, I just posted to be sure of... :D
I'll carry it in my hand baggage, as I normally do with films and cameras!
